PENNY LANE is a sans serif derived from twentieth-century cast-iron signs displaying Liverpool street names. Although the lettering used for vintage street signs varies in width and style, the semi-condensed Penny Lane Bold is fairly typical. The waist of letters like X and Y is positioned on the midline so may appear unusually high, the G is without a crossbar, and pointed characters like the Z might seem at odds with generally grotesque letter shapes.

Penny Lane is a straightforward, usable sans that looks modern and has a fresh lowercase with a healthy x-height designed for clarity; the fonts have been inspired by street sign lettering rather than insensitively tied to historical accuracy. A full complement of Latin Extended-A characters is included. Four nameplate frames can be found within each font for designing faux street signs, and a blank nameplate jpeg is also supplied.

The download consists of five fonts – Regular, Italic, Bold and Bold Italic weights, and also a distressed Corroded Bold, made to simulate the roughness of cast and painted letters when creating reproduction signs.
